Very simple ASCII-based skiing game, published by Italian software company Ultimobyte for the "Club della Rana" collection, to be bundled with Amstrad IBM PC Compatibles. Fun fact: while the filename is "tretre", after the famous competition skiing track in Madonna di Campiglio (TN), the title reported in game is "Skiing". In fact, this is a translation from "SKIING" made by Rick Dean. The text has been changed by Ultimobyte in the executable and the...

A very rare italian translation of 1992 RPG Legends of Valour, by US Gold. Touted as the Ultima Underworld killer, LOV had a mediocre reception due to the lousy plot and the obsolete graphics (compared to UU). Its open-ended nature, however, was unseen until then, and it was used as an inspiration for the successful "The Elder Scrolls" series, whose first episode would come out two years later.

The game is an ASCII-based strategy game based on a 10x14...
